Someone said :
People, have respect for your fellow peers in Ireland and have the test if you think you have contacted it, the worst case scenario being, if you infected someone that was a fatal risk and died as a result.
Be responsible, it is also our Irish attitude a why bother, yes bother is the message now!
No point in getting tested unless you have symptoms.
If you feel you might have it: self-isolate, that’s being respectful, as if you had it.
If you start having symptoms, then get your GP involved by phone, and get tested securely.
But straining the testing infrastructure will uselessly prevent serious cases being detected and taken care of.
